With the striking success of 1917 at the box office, The Last Full Measure couldn’t be coming out at a better time. It’s another historical war drama — this one, the real-life story of William Pitsenbarger, an American soldier who won the Medal of Honor 34 years after giving his life to save more than 60 colleagues. Sebastian Stan stars as a Pentagon official who seeks to grant Pitsenbarger the posthumous honor, and he told us he’s been forever changed after making the film.
